Law of Attraction Carnival #11

By January 23, 2007

Follow me on:

The Law of Attraction Carnival was created by Edward Mills of Evolving Times. Ed's intention in creating the carnival was "to provide a powerful tool for helping Deliberate Creators to deepen their connection with the Law of Attraction as well as become a valuable resource for those just beginning to explore this powerful Law."

Up until this 11th edition of the Law of Attraction Carnival, past editions of the carnival have been hosted by Ed at Evolving Times. I have been given the honor of hosting the carnival today for the first time outside of its home blog. How cool is that? I chose the theme of "intention" for this carnival edition. So, let's get this carnival underway...

The Power of Intention - Attraction via Intending

As an energywork practitioner, it is my habit to sit and chat briefly with clients prior to facilitating a Reiki or chakra-balancing session. I stress the importance of having an intention for both me (healing facilitator), and my client (healing recipient) to focus on before and during the hands-on session. Having an "intention" helps the healing work tremendously... giving direction to the healing work. Of course, healing can work with or without intention. But, getting somewhere without a map means we may not take the most direct route. Having a clear intention of the result or goal desired really helps the healing process come about more efficiently.

Reiki is often referred to as "smart energy" because it knows where healing is most needed and goes right to work regardless of focus on the part of the healer or client. I can't really say the same for the LOA. The LOA requires focus. We attract the things that we focus on. The problem is that we don't always focus on the things we want. Instead we obsess on things we don't like about our current situtation (I hate my job, nobody likes me, I don't have enough money, etc.) and as a result attract more of the same. This is why "intending postives" is an important ingredient in attracting the good stuff.

Set Your Goal, Keep Your Eyes On The Prize, Intend It.

Andrea Hess, Living Intuition, writes about her struggles in allowing manifestation of her intentions to come about, forever" watching the kettle that never boils." She says that magic happens all by itself if you can let it go.
Manifestation - Letting Go of the Process

Greg Butler, Holistic Personal Development Blog, says "The key to being in harmony with intent is to get away from ego and bring awareness into what you are doing."
Activating Intention as the Ultimate Attractor Energy

Miguel Trujillo, Think Happy Thoughts advises us how to be happy, no matter what.
Invincible Happiness

Craig Harper, offers his no nonsense Ten Step Scientific Approach to Success (success being the result, or your intention) based on what "science" has taught him about successful people.

Karen Lynch, Live the Power, posts about the Reticular Activation System which is the Action inspired by your Dream. She says "the Reticular Activation System is how the Law of Attraction works. We get what we focus on; we create what we think about and the RAS system of our brains just helps this process along."

Mark McManus, Build Your Life to Order shares his own experience of the LOA. He says "as within, so without" meaning that our thoughts, feelings, and attitudes bring about conswquences.
The Law Of Correspondence

Have you ever had an idea come to you when you are just drifting off to sleep or while soaking in the tub? I do all the time. I think it is because during a period of relaxing our ordinary thoughts float away and make room for sparks of inspired thoughts. Laura Young, Dragon Slayer's Guide to Life, writes about an idea that got her out of the tub and landed a photograph of hers on the cover of a magazine. Her dripping wet action really paid off. Congrats Laura!

Origami Your Intentions Tool
Maria Yu, offers a formula for writing out your intentions on paper and folding paper a certain way. I gave it a quick look, my first impressions is that the rules given were a bit limiting. You can only do this manifestation folding once a day, write out four words or less, don't use black paper, etc. The part about it being Origami sounded fun though.
Magic Folding for Manifestation

Priscilla Ortiz, Journal to Prosperity, Path to Freedom Inc. intends to think of good things as she begins to put the LOA into practice. She writes "I'm deciding to fill my life and thoughts with the utmost positive energy. I will watch my words and how I choose to express myself."
Attract It!

John Hill, Universe Of Success, suggests using the affirmation "I am a money magnet"
Making Money with the Law of Attraction

Scott Lee, Dirty Mechanism, posts Experiencing the Power of Positive Thinking

Self-proclaimed "avid user of the LOA" Aaron Potts, Today is that Day, posts three things that are critical to the process of attracting the life you want.

Raymond David Salas, ZenChill, sets his intentions for the day to be happy.
The Key to Happiness

Patricia, A Better You Blog, posts Self-Fulfilling Prophecy. She writes "It is an intentional decision to ignore or overwrite negative messages, and a deliberate stance to take on life half full. It is not easy, but with strength and a positive attitude, you can do it."

Robert Hand posts Universal Law of Attraction

Christine Kane, says "Sometimes I think our lesson in this lifetime is about allowing, and about trusting that things always work out once we intend them."

Great article.

I have been following all the media attention about The Secret and all the resulting controversy. I bought the original DVD.

Here’s one of my favorite picks. Your readers may be interested in learning about it. It’s a law of attraction resource website I’ve put up with free articles, videos and audios about the law of attraction that will transform your way of thinking, doing, being and having.

The Secret is not truly a secret to be learned. We possess the power to attract positives into our lives. What we need is to learn how to use it. I believe meditation is the first step in manifesting our desires. Maintaining positive words, thoughts and behaviors is the second. I work for a website that has a wonderful positive community.

Being possitive is they key of overcome hard times.
Also being focus in your being, I mean in your real “inside” and also focusing in all those things you already have and count on… all in our lives is a miracle. So let’s expect for more miracles happen
